that in the senate. in terms of saving money on defense, you are right, and we are. the two sides agreed to over $500 billion in defense cuts. people say is this funny money, is it real? it is not something i am in favor of because we live in a dangerous world we will lose 75,000 soldiers. we wanted to have 213 combat vessels. we will have 288. this is real reduction. i think the secretary of defense, secretary leon panetta has -- will tell you we have gone as far as we can safely go. i think both sides, and the president, i do not think we want military capability lower. i think we have saved as much as we possibly can. in terms of the other things, after the bush tax cuts came to thousand three, and revenue is higher than it was in 2003, and generated a lot of growth, and the deficit with the last republican majority leaving office -- our problem is a spending problem. we're spending a lot more money than we were then when the president came into office. we're putting off dealing with entitlement programs. we will double the people on medicare in the next 20 years. we should focus on where the prob

about energy when it was a forbidden topic in the defense department. this was through 2004. i got funding from the department of defense and it created the energy conversation. i want to get to a point that was brought up in number of times, having the american public understand this unbelievably complex story. i recommend you all watch alan alda's vido, "the flame." he asked what it was money was small and could not get an answer. he went up was done every university and they put on a worldwide contest to explain what a flame is to 11 year-old. they had 600 submissions and 6011 year old evaluated this. keep in mind how complex that is. i bought a book two weeks ago called "black gold" for my granddaughter by albert marin. i recommend of the academics in this room or anywhere. not many people are going to read or understand your report. a lot of what needs doing telling this story as that it has to be visual because it is so unbelievably complicated, interdependence, integrated, and for most of us, it just looks like chaos. i'm going to suggest that you do things like kids were st

syria is loading chemical weapons on to aircraft, but defense secretary panetta said it appears the embattled assad regime is preparing to do just that. >> there is no question that we remain very concerned, very thecerned that as the opposition advances, in particular on hemascus, that the regime might very well consider the use of chemical weapons. ing eporter: monitoring of syrian basis like this one has picked up evidence engineers have loaded the chemicals which combine to form the deadly nerve agent sarin, into bombs that could be dropped airplanes. satellites have seen trucks moving among want bunkers where the weapons and agents are believed to be stored. u.s. officials say the evidence is strong but circumstantial, not definitive. but that, combined with fighting in the suburbs of damascus, has led to fears of what the assad regime might do. if it feels cornered. we asked jeffrey white, a former analyst for the defense intelligence agency, what would happen if the rebels cut off damascus? >> it's the end of the regime. the regime can hang on for a while because it has t

rationality to it while it raises more revenue. there are countless opportunities in the department of defense to save money, starting with a quarter trillion dollars in the nuclear arsenal for weapons that we will never use and we don't need. there are opportunities for agricultural reform, and it's been my pleasure to work on bipartisan reform efforts with senator-elect jeff flake and my friend, paul ryan. and there are real opportunities in health care. now, i hope my republican friends will stop the charade we went through this last year and a half of repealing obamacare some 37 times. that train has left the station. the president was re-elected. it's not going to be repealed. the supreme court has decided it's constitutional. and most of the major health care players are busy at work implementing health care reform. but we have barely scratched the surface of the ability to squeeze more value out of the health care system. the united states does not have to spend nearly twice as much as all the other developed countries and actually have health care results that on average are worse than
the federal defense of marriage act, or d doma, and another involving california's proposition 8, banning same-sex marriages in that state. for analysis into these historic cases, what's going to be a historic hearing, i want to bring in kinji yoshityoshito, professor of constitutional law at new york city. great to see you. >> good to see you. >> put prop 8 aside for a second. do you believe that the supreme court will strike down doma. this is what what you've said. walk me through your thinking on that one. >> y bet. so doma is a really narrow challenge insofar as what the statute does is it says for federal purposes marriages are defined between one man and one woman. so i think it might be best to clarify this by example. so you take edie windsor, a plaintiff coming out of new york who's going to be the plaintiff in this case. she was with another woman for 40 years. they got married in 2007. when her partner passed away, her wife passed away, for state purposes, in the eyes of new york state, she was next of kin. so her remains were released to edie. but for federal purposes, they were c
, and -- >> let's cut this in two. there's to questions here. one is doma, the defense of marriage act. this administration will not defend it in the courts. if that gets struck down, what does that say to cases around the country where people have been allowed to marry in the same gender? chad, on that. what happens it doma gets struck down by the court, 5-4 or whatever? >> the ridiculously named defense of marriage act would be gone obviously. >> what would it mean to a gay person who is married? >> that would mean that couples who are married in those states as well as the district of columbia, their marriages would be recognized by the federal government. now, it would mean we still have a lot of work to do and depending on how they rule in the prop 8 case, we would still need other states to move forward with the right to marry. >> right. >> but social security, if you were in california, for example, and the appellate court is still upholing that prop 8 or overruling it, if you're in a state, for example, iowa, new york, massachusetts, connecticut, maryland, d.c., maine, vermont,
